. and then of course we need to strengthen our gun laws. i hope that either by executive action or leglative action, we will convene such a commission. but, mr. president, i want to make very clear i am not offering this idea as a substitute for any aion that we can take now, any action that the president can take now, for instance, with regard to the existing laws that are aimed at preventing people who shouldn't have guns from having them, keeping guns that really are military and are not part of hunting or sports shooting off the market. anything the president can do, anything congress can do. now, i would support a restoration of the assault ban today. these are wpons developed by our military originally, not by private industry for hunting or sport shooting purposes. they shouldn't be sold. we have got the background checks in the brady bill. if you attempt to buy a gun from a licensed federal firearms dealer, why shouldn't that exist for people who would buy a gun at a gun show, where incidentally terrorists we know have bought guns. so anything we can do quickly we ought to do. but i also think

are certainly planning to take action if that eventuality were to occur. gwen: but given the lessons of libya and egypt, what -- places where we intervened and felt we had, to what does take action mean? >> to lower expectations about what we can achieve by intervention. the situation in syria was getting so much that the costs of inaction were becoming so high they outweighed the risk of doing nothing. clearly the administration has come to that point. the radicalization of the opposition is one big point. they worry if he loses control it might fall into the hands of an al qaeda-type group. they also worry that that group might be the strongest group post assad and that sweg ways into an afghanistan kind of nightmare. it's spilling over to all the neighbors, many of whom are close allies of ours, jordan, turkey. i felt the administration thought it had to take a lot more assertive action. >> what is the pressure of russia, on moscow to dole with this? they've been backing their ally syria. where are they? >> secretary clinton met with the foreign minister of russia a couple of days ago. obv

much involved in action oriented programs. want to be known as the thing tank. i want to be known as an action oriented place that can make a difference in the world. i want to thank you all for having faith in us when we first convince you to support the bush center on the smu campus. laura and i just got back from a boy, and the nba. we went over there because at the bush center, one of her major initiatives is to honor human life. we believe all life is precious, whether they live in america for the continent of africa were disturbed by the fact that many women who have hiv/aids -- hiv virus are getting cervical cancer and not much is being done about it. so with your help could whip together together a collaborative effort to save lives. part of the mission was to kick off what we call pink ribbon, red pregnant in botswana as well as follow up in zambia where we kicked it off in december. laura and i also liked to go on refurbish a clinic. i wanted it to be a matter doesn't matter what your status is in life, you're never too proud to handily pay rush. ended up with more paint
and two shorter ones in his pocket and had it not been for the quick action, the courageous action of people there, he would have loaded and 30 more bullets would have been discharged. i come to this issue as a parent and a grandparent. i was on my way to the rural part of my district on friday when i heard the news about the shootings in connecticut. first i heard three had died. that was bad enough, and then i heard 20 children had died. i was devastated. i have two grandchildren the same age as the children who were shot and killed in newtown, connecticut. on sunday, when i opened the newspaper to read about the shootings, i saw a photograph of one of the children who was killed. her name was emily. a little blonde-haired girl with a beautiful smile. she looked at me from the paper, i saw my granddaughter's elsa and tilly looking back at me. so i come to this issue as a grandparent whose children but for fate could have been in the same situation as the children in newtown. and come to this as a member of congress. you know the people back home in just about every district keep
? why can't there be legislative action immediately if there's the desire of the people and overwhelming numbers show 57% if not higher asking americans if they want stricter gun controls, that i say yes. why does it have to be one or the other, mental health or some type of reasonable or sensible common sense ban on certain weapons? >> m-o-n-e-y. the republican party gets 80% or 90% of the money the nra dolls out to buy them and as a result it's always everything except for the gun but the reality is and people are smarter than this, there's always been mental illness. there's always been evil in our society. but what we now have is unrestricted access to military-style killing machines with bullets that were used to riddle the babies' bodies on friday. designed to maximize soft tissue damage. i mean, come on. and these members of congress look the other way and say it's everything but. they're just in the pocket of the nra and the democrats haven't been much better. we can get real substantive national gun laws that could save real people's lives and we can stop allowing congress to le
state, that we need action, and people say, well, it has to be comprehensive, and, sure, it has to be comprehensive, but there are certain things we can do right away. we could get rid of assault rifles. we can get rid of magazines that have more than ten bullets in them. had this guy been limited to a magazine clip that had ten bullets, nearly half those children would survive. it would wouldn't limb nature on incidents like this, but we can cut down on the carnage significantly. we can also close the gun show loophole. you know, it's shocking, alex, that 40% of the guns purchased in america are purchased without the buyer being subject to a background check. even nra members, 74% of nra members and 89% of all gun owners want background checks before anybody can get a gun, so the men and women in congress have to stiffen their backs, not be afraid of the organization the nra, because the members of the nra are better than the organization, and it's time for us to act finally once and for all. >> howard, your boss, mayor michael bloomberg, has been leading the charge on gun cont

and these children are our children. and we're going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics. this evening, michelle and i will do what i know every parent in america will do, which is hug our children a little tighter and we'll tell them that we love them. and we'll remind each other how deeply we love one another. but there are families in connecticut who cannot do that tonight and they need all of us right now. in our days to come, the community needs us to be at our best as americans and i will do everything in my power as president to help. because, while nothing can fill the space of a lost child or loved one all of us can extend the hand to those in need to remind name we are there for them that we are praying for them, that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their memories but also in ours. may god bless the memory of the victims and in the words of scripture heal the broken hearted and bind up their wounds >> o'donnell: there you have the president of the united states speaking as the comman
intervening action or debate on calendar number 834, 835 and 877 in that order. the motion to reconsider be considered made and laid on the table, there be no intervening action or debate and that no further motions be in order and that any related statements be printed in the record and that president obama be immediately notified of the senate's action and the senate then resume legislative session. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent that at a time to be determined by the majority leader, after consultation with the republican leader, the senate proceed to the consideration of the conference report to accompany h.r h.r. 43, the department of defense authorization act, for fiscal year 2013, that there be up to an hour of debate equally divided between the two leaders their designees prior to a vote on adoption of the conference report. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: thank you, mr. president. i would note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: quorum call: quor
with executive action. take a listen. >> well, i think that there are a number of things, and those are things that we're going to be talking about over the course of the next few weeks. not an extended period of time. the president, i guess, will be talking about this, but have specific proposals for congress to consider. we'll also look at what executive action the president might take. megyn: joining me now, chris stirewalt, our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com live. so what kind of executive action is he talking about, chris? when he had the assault weapons ban in place from '94 to 2004, it was a big political deal, and a lot of folks who voted for it wound up getting kicked out of office because, you know, gun rights are something people feel very passionately about in the country. if it could have been done by executive action, in other words, that's probably how other presidents would have been done it too. >> well, certainly, the president in a second term might feel differently about this than he did in the first term. he has some latitude when
tes tantntestant the reality when you look at the republican actions in particular, and the republican actions are polling 20% approval and the president is polling 50% approval, but the 20% approval is about the action on the cliff and not how they play in their individual districts. so when you travel around the country, and i have been to e tea party country in arizona, et cetera, there is a huge incentive for some of the more junior members of congress to stand their ground. it doesn't have to do with the fiscal math of the country, but it has to do with the electoral math of the home districts. >> and i think that she has put the finger on the thing that we are missing when we taub abolk this, because we act as if congress governs at a body with national interests and held accountable to national constituencies, but no, if it is game theory, each one of them is facing a different payoff structure in their own home constituen constituency. >> and it is skewed. first of all the tea party a minority, but the way that the republicans control the state governmentships and the state leg
particularly want to thank you, we need to take action. congress needs to come together and take action to protect the safety of our children. we must do better. there have been too many episodes in which children's lives and others have been lost that we must figure out ways to do things, to act to prevent these types of tragedies. this conversation must include a discussion about the culture of violence that preemanates our culture today, including the glorification of violence to our children and young adults. we see too much of this violence and it has to have an impact on young children. we need to know how we can responsibly deal with this circumstance. must include a discussion of the mental health services provided to americans, including our students. many of us have talked about this in the past. we have to be more aggressive in dealing with the mental health needs of all the people in our community. and as chairman leahy pointed out, we must discuss the issue about the ready access of individuals to weapons. now, i know there are different views in this congress. i must tell
of toyota are heading higher after the u.s. settled a class action lawsuit. the $1 billion payment is already priced in. okay. welcome to "worldwide exchange." plenty of news to watch out of washington. all of this week, we thought it would be a quiet one. but i won't be inside the beltway if they want to get something done. the u.s. will hit the $16.4 trillion debt ceiling come monday. in a letter to congressional leaders, geithner says treasury will begin taking steps to save the government about $2 billion. geithner says it's harder to predict a time frame because the ongone fiscal cliff talks make it difficult to forecast next year's budget. among the measures treasury will take including suspending state and local government securities and investments in the federal employee pension funds. those don't sound like good practices going forward. president obama meanwhile arrives back in washington after cutting short his christmas vacation in hawaii. congress is back in town, but little progress was made over the holiday to avoid the fiscal cliff and no talks have been set. the se
, wait. hold your horses. do not take action because kissinger is going to move on with provided doctors. when the telegram was sent from the state department to the embassy during yom kippur, the egyptian and syrian armies were already on their way to destroy the jewish state. that is an example of a mistake because the leader at the time, she was afraid to take a preemptive attack. she was afraid to hold the reserve because she said i don't know what will be the reaction in washington. and dr. kissinger was very strong. nixon was going down, he was going up and she was afraid from his reaction. because of her approach, we almost lost the world. that is why today we do with the issue of iran, we have to take the decision which is good for israel. maybe it will not be popular in the u.n. for sure. everything you say about israel and the standard of the one sponsored by u.s. money of some event maybe one day will be a committee to look at the decision and the u.n. but also it will not be popular in the u.s. only today, secretary clinton a few hours ago said we should not put any red light
to that on party principal. you have seen republican groups like heritage action and club for growth recommend a no vote on plan b. it's a big question whether john boehner has 218 votes to get the back up plan passed through the house. >> the plan b for people who are not familiar would raise taxes on incomes above $1 million, but does nothing to deal with the across the board spending cuts known as the sequester which we talked so much about, entitlement spending and provisions that the president brought up today. he pointed out laj cally the plan makes no sense when you look at what the republicans said they want to do, particularly attack spending cuts and spending in the country and does not address that. >> the timing is also very important too. this plan b that house speaker john boehner is proposing came after president obama made his biggest concessions in the cliskal cliff debate. as well as actually proposing adjustments to the cost of living adjustments to social security. both of which liberals were not happy about, but they were concessions none the less. then the republicans go
and vowed to take action. >> as i said earlier this week, i can't do it alone. i need your help. if we're going to succeed it will take a sustained effort for mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, law enforcement and responsible gun owners. >> with the president calling for concrete change by next month, there is already signs of republican resistance to his push for stronger gun control. >> what bothered me the most as a representative is how this has been politicized so quickly. >> do you dare come on my show and say i am using the slaughter of 20 little 6 and 7-year-old children? >> how many children do you have? >> joe, how many children do you have? >> i have four children, tim. answer my question. >> so do i and i refuse to let you say because you have children or anybody else that we need to actually politicize this. >> joining me now, delaware attorney general beau biden whose father vice president joe biden is leading the new task force and los angeles mayor and the current president of the u.s. conference of mayors and a member of the mayors against illegal guns and also j

through, especially today. the fed is pumping action of billions of dollars in the market every month. the same time they're staying low or longer or slower longer which is an inflationary message . liz: again, people still look at that as a safety play, and i don't know if they should. >> because of the deflationary aspect we won't see inflation in the short term. deflationary in the short term. you could see that up to one and a quarter or below one. be careful about getting in front of that. it happens later than sooner. we have to worry about deflationary. liz: i should have been clearer when i said, are they fully yen. what i meant was fully engaged. watching the news flow, reading the new york times and the "wall street journal" to make sure they are on top of the fiscal cliff story. hard to go on vacation. >> absolutely. held in late now. more rhetoric than answers. we need more direction and tangible news so we can go forward. liz: that's higher. people have not even heard mention that it becomes the sort of holiday driving season. people get in the cargo visit their grandpare

no discrimination against any minorities. this is why we do not have any fear that specific actions will be taken against minorities, against christians. we do not forget at the same assad -- if you are the assad regime, but it belongs to the alawites. if you are made specific group within the alawite community, you are investing in the civil war. there is a fear about the future of the alawite community. since many from the community, they played a role killing other syrians for money, for support from the security forces. but we are committed to the syrians for all. we are proposing within the opposition a program called a transitional justice that can assure all the minorities to be a part from syria -- in 1956 the prime minister, the majority of the christians. a minority of the minority. even that as he became prime minister for two terms. the muslims have 4 seats in parliament and this supported his positions. in syria we did not have a history of civil war. many changes in the social fabric. i think the nature of the syrian society as a conciliation between still exists. this is a great as
meaningful action to prevent tragedies like this regardless of the politics. this evening, michele and i will do will every. and i would do is hug our children a little bit tighter. we will tell them that we love them and remind them how deeply we love each other. there are families who cannot do that tonight and they need all of us a break now. the days to come, the community needs to us to be as our best as americans and i will do everything in my power as a president to help. while nothing can fill the space of a lost child, love one. all of us can extend a hand to those in need to remind that we are there for them. that we are praying for them. the love that they felt for the lost and doors not just in their memories also in hours. indoors. may god bless the memory of the victim's. indoo and door and he will the brokenhearted. and pined for warmth endour... there is a vigil outside of our white house tonight. hundreds of people wanted to express their grief and support for the families. tonight - there is a vigil outside the white house. this was the scene earlier. hundreds of people
comments, craig, of course, is that he called for meaningful action, regardless of the politics. what specifically does that mean, we'll have to wait and see. we'll probably get more information about that in the coming days. but i can tell you that this president has made it clear that he supports a ban on assault weapons. that, of course, expired back in 2004. he has also called for better background checks and called for better preventative measures, to try to keep weapons out of the hands of people who are mentally unstable. we are in contact with the white house, trying to determine if and when he will visit, but i would not be surprised if he made that trip. craig? >> the president is starting to get hammered. michael bloomberg yesterday basically saying that the president's rhetoric on gun control not enough. then there was congresswoman mccarthy, carol mccarthy from new york, who said yesterday, quote, the gloves are off if president obama fails to act on the issue. is the white house saying anything at all about some of the backlash that it's starting to get? >> reporter: wel
if he left behind anything that would explain his actions. but they tell us that there was no note, no letter, unlike some of the past school shootings where the people who committed them did leave detailed writings because they wanted people to know some message. >> and one other detail that struck me, you had a lockdown scenario in the school. he only visits this violence on two of the classrooms. other teachers and the other children were all locked down in their classrooms or other places. >> right. and we don't know why he chose those two classrooms. there was earlier misinformation that he chose the classroom where his mother taught kindergarten. this is something we still haven't nailed down. while it's clear she wasn't a full-time faculty member, there are people that say that at some time she volunteered at that school. >> but no other connection that he had to the school? >> not that we know of. >> thank you, pete, thank you for your reporting. >> you bet. >>> i want to turn now to connecticut governor danell malloy. i am profoundly sorry we are doing this interview this
larger numbers of people, whether to take military action of some kind that could prevent a mass atrocity. if that is the choice we now face, it is a grave and sobering decision and would put the starkest expression on the failure of the administration's policy towards syria. savage and unfair fight, this raged now for nearly two years. the longer this conflict has gone, the worse it has gotten. all of those who argued for non intervention because of the things that might happen are now happening because we failed to intervene. and the fact is that we have now reached a point where there are weapons of mass destruction that may be used and also, there is a significant question about the security of these weapons should assad fall. we would like to make several points, one is that it's now up to the russians to do everything possible and maximize their influence over assad to make sure that he does not use these weapons. it is time for the united states and our allies to make it clear to assad that this is an unacceptable act. it is time for us to be ready for any eventuality, including th
